trust in government for the government to work effectively. >> good evening. i'm dana perino. in the latest news about the nsa giving americans yet another reason to distrust our government, "the washington post" revealing that the nsa has broken privacy rules, thousands of times, every year since 2008. and the chief judge of the secret court that's supposed to police the government's spying program says that the court has limited ability to do its job. the nsa issuing this response, quote, when nsa makes a mistake and carrying out its foreign intelligence mission, the agency reports the issue internally and to federal overseers and aggressively gets to the bottom of it. congressman goudi joins us. thank you for being here on a friday evening. let me ask you. when you first heard of this news last night, were you surprised or in line with what you thought was probably happening? >> well, dana, i would like to tell you i'm still surprised when government disappoints and when there's evidence we can't trust people in positions of power but i'm beyond that point. i was surprised
industry is down. >>> hello, i'm kimberly guilfoyle, with bob beckel, dana perino, brian kilmeade, eric bolling. it is 5:00. this is "the five." the debate over racial profiling in america was reignited with the trayvon martin case and the uproar over stand your ground laws. now another law is coming under intense national scrutiny and that is stop and frisk. last week, a federal judge banned new york police department from using the crime fighting tool, saying it targets minorities, yesterday, trayvon martin's mother and the head of the naacp got in support of the ruling. >> i think you have to give not only civilian but you have to give the police officers the right direction. you can't yield people in authority the right to stop somebody because of the color of their skin. >> just because there are more murders in our community doesn't mean that you can treat all of us like we are guilty. >> and why commissioner ray kelly argues it is minorities in danger without stop and frisk. >> the losers in this, if this case is allowed to stand, are people that live in minority communities. 97%
you thought was probably happening? >> well, dana, i would like to tell you i'm still surprised when government disappoints and when there's evidence we can't trust people in positions of power but i'm beyond that point. i was surprised at the pervas e pervasiveness of it. thousands of incidents. here's what does surprise me. i know having three branches of government is tedious sometimes. i know that that is disappointing to the executive branch. but i wonder how many of my colleagues in congress were briefed that there were thousands of errors made with respect to this program because i have a sneaking suspicion the number is zero. that's how many of my colleagues were told ahead of time before we had to learn from a leaker to a newspaper that there were thousands of violations. >> so, i believe that congressman rogers office said they did see the memo are regular reports but if the nsa is doing trillions of searchless looking for a need until a haystack, is a couple of thousand violations that were pretty much computer generated not intended incidents by the intelligence communit
with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, and brian kilmeade. it is 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." as the summer races forward, so does the race debate in america. stand your ground gave way to stop and frisk, now "the butler" hottest movie of the summer has a director that says america is more racist since president obama took office than before. more on that in a moment. first, we know the zimmerman trial ended weeks ago. i was stunned when i saw a brand new political attack ad which reenac reenacts the night trayvon martin crossed paths with george zimmerman. it is dramatic, provocative, is it fair. before we show the ad, we must warn you it is dramatic. beware if you have kids, especially younger kids watching. >> are you following him? >> yeah. >> okay, we don't need you to do that. >> okay. all right, sir, what is your name? >> george. >> he is yelling help? >> yes. there's gunshots. get down! >> who is saying they shot who. >> a guy is raising his hands up, saying he shot the person. >> kg, this group called coalition to stop gun violence. using actual 911 tapes to re
and the corporate sponsorship of sex, and dana del, the executive director of spark. what we showed so far was tame compared to some of the other things that were on that show. amanda you wrote in slate, you said that's not that big of a deal, we should try not caring. i think she has the right to do whatever she wants, but shouldn't parents care. this was -- a lot of young kids were watching this. >> that's the point of pop music, isn't it? to be raunchy, press buttons, and be sexy fun and clever. >> but there is a lot that isn't that way? >> yeah, but miley cyrus wants a larger more adult audience. she wants the 16 and up crowd, and they want the raunchy stuff. >> but do you have to get as raunchy as this was, now we're seeing some of the more extreme things, and that was just a part of it. this went on for quite a while. >> i thought the performance wasn't even that sexy, because does. >> it was more vulgar than sexy. >> yeah, she was trying on dance form that she is not even very good at. it's called twerking, and we have to accept that the whole point of this dance muse sick to let lose and ha
is all about that. that makes them his best friend and vice versa. >> hose of the dana show. nice to see you, dana. >> nice to be here, greta. thanks for having me back. >> dana, is rush limbaugh right about this or not? is the media slavish to the -- i think that was the term he used -- to president obama? >> absolutely. he's spot-on. that was a fantastic interview, too, last night. i think that goes to why rush is around in the political sphere and in talk radio as long as he has. he has his finger on the pulse of everything going on in politics and the relationship between the democrats and the media. it amuses me so much because it's like an abusive relationship that this administration has with the media. a couple of months ago, the top headlines were how the department of justice were seizing the phone records of associated press reporters, they were targeting fox news employees. a number of different reporters were coming forward. the department of justice and this administration didn't like a particular story, they were targeting these members of the media. now, all of a sudden w
. will the administration be able to win enough support? our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is in washington. hi, dana. i know you have been working your sources all day. it looks from here like the mood in washington really seems to reflect the mood around the country right now on syria, it's conflicted. so, what are you learning right now? >> reporter: that's right, hi, jess. i should tell you that the conference call should be wrapping up right about now and i'm hoping to get a read on what the top lawmakers were told and whether their questions were answered. but, yes, you're right, the mood among members of congress i would say is beyond ambivalence, it's really frustration, 150-plus law make enks are demanding that the president come to congress for authorization before any military action. that's a big partisanship group but it's a lot of anti-war and anti-interventionist congressmen. and the problem for the administration is even some lawmakers who i've spoken with who are natural allies with the obama administration at holding syria accountable have trouble supporting him because th
we should mention, you heard dana mention benghazi, we're come can go up on the one year anniversary of that attack. very much on the minds of the president's security team. you recall the u.n. ambassador was confirmed over in the senate. she's the final piece of the top level puzzle for the president's new national team. this weekend this will be a big test for that new team. >> thank you very much as well as dana, chris and jill. we'll be following these travel warnings throughout the afternoon and this hour. >>> edward snowden spent his first night in relative freedom with american friends in moscow. this was the first few hours outside the airport. this is since late june. he was on the run from u.s. charges of being a spy. he continues to be. phil black is in moscow where he talked to snowden's lawyer. >> reporter: it's the face of a very happy man. the first images show him smiling broadly as he walks out of airport six weeks after he arrives. his location is a secret but his lawyer says snowden is staying with people who got in touch, reached out online and offered to help him
guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, and greg gutfeld. it is 5:00 in new york city. as you read in the paper, it is "the five"! so last week we told you about the brutal beating of a 13-year-old white kid by three african-american teens on a school bus in florida. on "the five," we have been calling for civil rights leaders and the president to speak publicly about the issue. still haven't heard a word from al sharpton, president obama, eric holder, or the naacp, but over the weekend, rev. jesse jackson stepped up to the plate and said this. >> we tried to make contact of the family of the kids because we should discourage people attacking people, whether black, white, white, black, people should stop attacking people. you must learn to live together respectfully in a civilized way, and if it comes black white white black, it makes matters worse, it does not make it better. >> took awhile, but give credit where credit is due. ref recommended jesse jackson steppedd made a comment. >> he was in africa and had been away. he said black white, white black, he went to the core of the thing and sai
was the voice of god? dana howard, the voice of god. thank you, dana howard. we will be hearing from peter lee. herb schwartz, the regional director of the health and services representing the obama administration in our region. barbara garcia. what an honor it is for me to be here with them because i know of their leadership and their work. john, ceo and founder of small business majority -- without him it would be impossible to pass the affordable care act. thank you for your tremendous work on that. [applause] and wendell, my senior health policy advisor resource to all members of congress, house and senate, and to the administration, on health policy. what does wendell think? is what we say all the time about this issue. that is what we all find out. thank you, wendell, for being here. [applause] as america's first health marketplace -- we take pride in that -- covered california is leading the way in establishing a bright and healthy future for the golden state by making sure insured as well as uninsured californians find plans that suit their needs and their pocketbooks. i say this plan
family and music fans were setting twitter on fire. dana is here with us. nice to see you. >> thanks, greta, for having me back. >> and let me -- >> wow. >> let me guess, you loved it, right? >> you know, yeah, i guess if you like a nightmare that involves teddy ruxpin and vera de milo's character from the 1990s, if you throw all those things together, it was wonderful. i've never seen anything like that. greta, there's two things that miley needs. everyone in america can agree on, jesus and skwut -- squats. >> i guess i didn't follow her career very much. i just thought, well, this looks like hollywood. this is the kind of junk we're seeing. if you have a history with her and watched her grow up, you're more scandalized than the rest of us, you know, this is never going to clean up at this point. >> well, yeah, and the thing with this, greta, is i don't -- you don't have to be shocking for the sake of shock in order to be artistic. it seems a lot of entertainment thinks vulgarity is somehow a substitute for skill or talent and it's not. during the same evening we saw amazing perform
congressional correspondent dana bash joins us from our washington bureau with more on that side of the story. good morning. >> good morning, carol. two members of congress who have been demanding consultation and input on the administration strategy on syria and they also want evidence that the military action, if it is used, would be justified. >> cnn has told top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on a thursday night conference call they have no doubt assad's regime was behind deadly chemical attacks there. revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high-level syrian official which clearly indicates they were responsible for these. the half hour into telephone briefing began moments after british parliament struck at least a short-term blow to u.s. hopes of a coalition defeating a measure authorizing force against syria. though, obama officials insisted no decisions have been made on military action against syria. cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat, the u.s. could engage with or without supp
's dana bash. >> reporter: only few months ago you couldn't turn on the tv without seeing john mccain railing against president obama. >> this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal imcompetence or engaged in a cover-up. >> reporter: but now, a 180. >> i think there is a more of a desire to work together. >> reporter: suddenly mccain is obama's go-to guy to get things done on immigration, striking a deal allowing confirmation of half a dozen of obama's nominees and now heading to egypt with republican lindsay graham at the president's request. >> we have relationships with many of people in egypt because of our past encounters. >> reporter: back when they were rival for president, it was hard to imagine that obama/mccain -- >> who is the real barack obama? i gue i. >> reporter: in 2008, did you ever think that you would be president obama's republican deal maker? >> no. look, i worked on a lot of issues with president clinton. as well as the republican presidents. so, it's not as if i haven't done this before. >> reporter: he certainly has. it's how m
crips? >> well, more likely they're engaged in warfare over drugs, dana doesn't like the hate crime legislation, i'm not particularly favorable to it either. but in some cases, you don't have anything to fall back on. where in some cases, a person gets killed because they're gay, and then the feds can come in and say it is a hate crime. that is a situation where i think it is fine. we talked about this yesterday, a lot of countries in the world think we're crazy for what we do about guns here. and it is something that is a major conversation piece in other countries because we do allow guns freely to move around in this country. and we have guns moving around, you get people who are hateful people like this get their hands on it. >> we don't let guns roam around freely. >> yes, we do. >> no, you are required to get a background check. the only ones running around are those purchased illegally. one more thing to point out, in this exact case, a .22 caliber pistol was used. it is illegal to own a pistol until you were 21 years old in this country. they broke the law there, guarantee t

be, are not up for debate. cnn's dana bash, our chief congressional correspondent, joins me now. when you look at history, dana, it shows that presidents -- just a reminder. u i any you know this. presidents can launch military action without approval from congress. grenada, '83. pan na, '89. iraq, '91. haiti, '94. kosovo, '99. why a briefing in a couple of hours, dana bash? >> reporter: in short, politics. members of congress, even natural allies of president obama have been demanding coordination. tonight 6:00 p.m. this evening secretaries of state and defense and others will hold a conference call with president obama and other key committee heads to discuss the nation's posture on syria. what's interesting is that lawmakers are not here. they are still back in their states, in their districts on congressional recess. since they're all over the country, some will be on their cell phones. it is not going to be a secure line. meaning it can't be classified. it's going to be an unclassified conversation. one source who's going to be on the call who i talked to kind of rolled his eyes
. let's brang in our chief congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, you just heard jim talk about the vice president of the united states. he goes up to capitol hill and he briefs the leadership, the leadership of the house and i guess the senate, the top people there, including the key members of the intelligence committees. >> i talked to a source who said this is where they were first told by the vice president of the united states and some senior state department officials about this threat which the source who i talked to said was incredibly significant. it was clear from the get-go this was going to be something that caused a lot of concern. i talked to other congressional sources briefed through other avenues and venues who say that this is something that the administration clearly needed to do. you heard jill talk about the fact that this is so sweeping in part because they want to make sure they don't get caught flat-footed like they did in benghazi on 9/11 last year. even republican sources who i talked to say that this is absolutely the right thing to do, appropriate re
targets in syria. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is joining us on the phone. i've got through this letter. i know you have as well. he's raising all sorts of questions, this speaker. >> reporter: all sorts of questions, very specific questions about not just what kind of military action might the administration use, but more specifically what kind of information would they be basing this on, with regard to chemical weapons. what's very interesting about this letter is a couple things, first of all, the speaker make pretty clear that he agrees with the administration that syria is a very important area in national securitywise, and that he supports being aggressive with regard to potential for chemical weapons. he also says this -- i respectfully request that you as the country's commander in chief personally make the indication to the american people and congress for how potential military action will security american national security, and he goes on to say preserve america's credibility and deter the future use of chemical weapons. what he's trying to do here is kin
traffic and lack of interest in women's apparel. dana tulsi and courtney reagan join us this morning. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> dana, it's been said when the retailer who has shirtless models has trouble bringing in young women, there's a problem. what is going on? >> i think it's a broader problem than just abercrombie. the teen environment this year for back to school can't comp the color denim of last year and doesn't have enough newness in the tops business to drive traffic. while traffic is weak, the month of july was also very sluggish, too. we're going to need the rest of august and september in order to sell through these products. but products are a challenge and traffic is a challenge. >> court, some are arguing they just stuck with their old look for too long and that look is not as relevant as it used to be. >> and a lot of consumer surveys of these teen panels both out of piper jaffrays and jeffreys had a lot of teens saying abercrombie just isn't cool anymore. whats my little sister wears, i'm over it. they like names like urban outfitters, perhaps a co
the country look small. made the presidency look small. >> dana, nice to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> a lot of attention on the president's 15 or 20 minutes or half hour of time he spent on "the tonight show." today he was at camp pendleton. but last night gets the attention. do you have the sense that the people you speak to on your radio show are satisfied that his attention is full speed ahead on the american people? >> people aren't satisfied. it was actually smart of him to go on jay leno. then he can say he answered questions without really having to answer questions concerning all of the scandals, questions about benghazi. it was softball. that's for the low information voter, the people who don't watch the headlines. they will get it from a couple of 30 second s on the local news and that's it. but they stay up to watch late night television. he was able to answer things without really having to answer them. unfortunately the people who are really most active, the ones who go out and register the voters, go door to door, the people who energized the base and energize elect
on the complex political situation facing the president, i want to bring in dana milbank, political columnist for the "washington post." you just heard andrea mitchell talk about the fact you have this president who came into office, elected in large part getting that democratic nomination because of his caution, but this thing is moving, this train's going in one direction, and that's toward military action. >> that's right. he opposed iraq as a dumb war, but by his own terms, he's left himself absolutely no choice here because he said famously that this was the red line. the use of chemical weapons and if there had been any doubt before, his administration has erased that today. it has to be a very serious response, and as andrea was discussing, the only real question is whether it is this surge cal strike or a more intensive air campaign against the syrian regime. nobody's talking about anything beyond air power at this point. the only certainty we have is that whatever this president does, he's going to be criticized for it for doing too much for doing too little, for going with the unite
, dana bash and republican strategies and president of new frontier strategy, phil muser. there was a reporter for the "boston globe" who tweeted in if you told me that john kerry would be giving a speech supporting confronting the middle east, it would have blown your mind. how hard is this for the democratic party to be doing right now? >> it's not easy for any party. i agree with president bush -- >> i'm sorry, can you say that again? >> i do, i agree with president bush. no one wants to us be using military force. at the same time, we don't want to sit there and encourage people or allow people to use chemical weapons on their own. >> there have been a lot of republicans on the phone and pda saying look at the democrats now, it's a much different tune than in 2004. >> i'd be careful if i were them. this is not the time to be politicizing them. >> phil, on the subject of being careful here, where the republicans? people who very much were in support of an invasion of a country for the alleged possession of chemical weapons and now seem to oppose a limited action agains
congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, you have new information, as well. >> we've been talking about the fact that senators mccain, john mccain and lindsey graham released a statement, pretty hard-hitting statement, saying that they're very concerned about action being limited, as barbara was just talking about. i just got off the phone with senator graham to try to clarify if this means that he would actually vote against authorization if it would just authorize limited military force. what he told me is that they would only get his vote if, never mind how the authorization resolution was written, but if they -- in addition to that, gave him and other members of congress very clear timeline, explanation of what they blplano do afterwards, he and senator mccain has been focused on trying to train and harm rebels who are trustworthy in that area. he wants to have very clear information about that and if he doesn't, it will be hard for him to vote yes. why is this important? because he and mccain have been perhaps the most aggressive ong saying there needs to be action. he told me in a

to cover every angel of it beginning with dana >>> top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on the thursday night conference call they have no doubt ba sar assad's regime in syria was behind deadly chemical attacks there. secretaries of state, defense and others backed that up by revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high level syrian official, which clearly indicates they were responsible for these weapons, that according to congressman el yol engel who participated in the call. though obama insists no decisions have been made, cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat the u.s. could engage with or without support from great britain. bob corker emerged from briefings thursday announcing support for surgical proportional military strikes, given the evidence of continued use of chemical warfare. bob menendez reaffirmed his support saying a decisive and consequential u.s. response is justified and warranted. . others argued the president still has to come before congress and the amer
. this came during a meeting with a delegation of syrian expatriates. dana bash is joining us on the phone. we know there have been some conference calls between the white house and republicans and democrats. what are you hearing? >> that's right. they're going to take place our understanding is in a couple hours with at least on the senate side with republicans and democrats, but we also just learned that tomorrow, that's sunday, the white house is offering or at least administration officials are offering to come to capitol hill on a sunday to offer a classified briefing on the intelligence that the u.s. has on syria's chemical weapons to any and all members who are in town. sunday is labor day weekend. unclear how many will be able to make it in but it's significant for several reasons. one is that members of congress have been real chomping at the bit to get, understandably, to get information in a classified way that makes them feel comfortable that any kind of military strikes would be justified, but also this is just tea leaf reading here, it might be questionable whether or not they wo
those represent, conservatives do not? >> that is a big part of -- dana rohrabacher was just speaking a few days ago where he basically tipped his hand in this. it's basically if the planet is warming then we'll need government intervention. because we don't like government intervention, ergo the planet cannot be warming. and it's a reverse engineered logic that gets them to opposing it. >> polls show it's a pressing issue for americans, an issue you examine in the documentary. let's take a look at your work. >> according to a recent gallup poll, only one-third of americans are greatly worried about climate change. what can possibly explain this apathy when 99.8% of scientific study support the existence of human-caused global warming? well, some of the credit goes to the so called experts who peddle dubious science to counter any government attempt to tackle the issue, the deniers. >> if you do nothing about this at all, for the whole of the next 23 years, the worst that will happen, using the u.n.'s own estimates, is a one fahrenheit degree warming, which will be largely harmless an

they wrapped up a conference call. more from dana bash. this conference between the white house and members of congress, what do you know about it? >> i just talked to a lawmaker on that call and it lasted for more than an hour, close to an hour and a half and the gist of the administration's message is what we've heard publicly, they believe that assad's regime did use chemical weapons, that was the main message. they insisted that no decision has been made with regard to military action. there is no timetable on what or when that would be, but i'm also told even though there were 20 to 25 people of both parties on this call with administration officials, the secretaries of state and defense and others, it wasn't antagonistic. i'm told it was a good discussion. they listened to everybody's opinions, the opinions i'm sure as you suspect were varied but nobody said don't do it. one of the questions i had, was what the effect in great britain would be on members of congress. the answer that obama officials gave is that the u.s. is going to do what it needs to do, and another country will not
